Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body.
Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better well-being for their clients.
Will reflexology help me?
Well trained reflexologists do not claim to cure, diagnose or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your health. Some people find it works for them, some don’t. The best way to find out is to try it!
The principle of reflexology is that it helps the body to restore its balance naturally. Usually after a treatment your tension will be reduced and you will feel relaxed. You might also notice yourself sleeping better and find your mood and sense of well-being improves. You may also find that other symptoms or complaints improve too. However, this happens on an individual basis.
There have been some positive research projects carried out with reflexology, but as yet there is not a large enough body of evidence for reflexologists to make clinical claims of effectiveness.
But with ever increasing levels of stress in everyday life, it is important for people to take more responsibility for their own healthcare needs. Reflexology may be one of the ways to mitigate the stresses of modern life.

Elise gained her Diploma in Reflexology from the Bristol School of Holistic Therapies and is a member of the Association of Reflexologists.
She has used complementary therapies for most of her adult life but became interested in reflexology after receiving a treatment post-operatively. This experience made her realise the benefits of reflexology. She felt that it helped her recovery on a physical level but also encouraged her body into better sleeping patterns and reduced her stress levels.
